Earlier today I read this post about trading heels for wellies and it got me thinking about my own “personal style”. I have never been one for high heels. I do however have a lot of boots. A. Lot. Of. Boots. I own flip flops, tennis shoes, some heels because every girl needs them and boots. I am generally a tshirt and jeans kind of girl and I am glad that when I go into my office all I have to do is grab a polo provided to me and clean jeans and go. No thinking and very little matching required. But what about when a farm girl needs or wants to get dressed up? Then what? I am severely lacking in clothes that run between farm fab, concert shirts and all out dressed up in dresses. The kind of thing that you wear out on a Saturday night to a bar that doesn’t include a crop report and neighborhood gossip within 5 minutes of stepping in the door. So what is holding me back from filling that part of my wardrobe? I have no clue what to buy! What fits my style, what fits my body and what fits “me” seem to be out of reach. The funny thing is what I like the look of, is pretty much the opposite of what I wear everyday.
This is my on farm look. Jeans, layered fleeces and a hat. Note, that is not a John Deere hat. It’s a Justin Boots hat, I got it free with a pair of boots. The blue milking gloves really make the outfit.
Look it’s jeans, long sleeve shirt and a concert shirt!…. and some empty shot glasses. Apple pie if I remember correctly.
Anyways… As much as I love jeans I would also like to look and feel good when I go out.
My little secret… I love pinup! I love the overly girly, makeup on, hair did, glam look. If I had a team of people at my beck and call I would be 50’s glam everytime I pulled out of my driveway. I dont have that team of people so I guess I will stick to the glam look on rare special occasions.
My big question is, what do I wear in between these levels? I am trying to expand my closet. What have you found lately? Favorite wardrobe pieces? Help! I just bought these two items to show that I mean business.
